Denver rode on a brilliant Russell Wilson show to take an early 10-0 lead in the first quarter. However, their offense failed to build on it and seemed ordinary in the second half. 

Hackett took the blame for yet another loss. After the game, he was asked how frustrated he is with the offense.

“First and foremost, it starts with me. I feel like I can do more. And continually work to try to find the best schemes for our players. We’ll have to look at this game and see where some of those things broke down. We’ve got to come up with better plays for the guys and the guys got to be better at executing them. So, it’s a combination of all of us working together, coming together, and making sure we’re doing all the right stuff,” Hackett said.

The Broncos’ offense has struggled for six games in a row. They scored 16 points for the third time this season and are 0-3 on the road.
